WHAT IS THE BREAST CANCER?

The cancer of breast is a malignant proliferation of the cells epiteliales that re-dress the conduits or lobulillos of the breast. Everything begins when an individual cell product of a series of somatic mutations or of line germinal acquires the aptitude to divide without control or order, doing that is reproduced up to forming a tumor. The tumor invades neighboring fabrics and, finally, it propagates to other parts of the body.
